2019 Monigotes generate divided opinions.

In preparation for Carnaval, “Monigotes” are installed on the Malecon every year.

But apparently, the figuerines this year are not quite the same as in previous years. According to a survey by the newspaper El Debate , there are many locals and tourists who are not so happy with this year’s Monigotes.

Some of those interviewed said that they really do not see a connection of some of the figures – like a scarecrow or an indigenus doll – with the Carnaval

This year the Carnaval theme is Equinox, and some figures are related to the sun and moon, but many people said that it would be easier to understand the figures with a brief explation of each design.

In my personal opinion, I really think that previous years “monigotes” were of better quality, fashioned out of ” papier-mache” while this year they are made of fabric and wire frames. Also previous designs were more creative and colorful representing the joy of Carnaval.

And you? Do you like them or……?
